Last Saturday, I joined the Streatham Stands Together vigil along with Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan. It was a pleasure to get Streatham together to celebrate the things that make this area great: faith, diversity, activism and strength in the face of adversity.
We were joined by religious leaders of different faiths, politicians of different parties, and local people from all walks of life.
A big thank you to local group, Streatham Singing Mamas, for organising a mass acapella procession up the High Road. It was a joy to raise our collective voice and stand in unity against attempts to sow the seeds of division within our community.
Terror attacks in diverse metropolitan communities like ours are always designed to create dividing lines. But I know Streathamers are tough. Seeing our community remained united and unafraid in the aftermath of such a shock made me proud to be the Streatham MP.
